Pumpkin Cookies

I know, I know…more pumpkin??

These are really good, and it’s an old recipe of my mom’s. You’ve got to try these!

2 cups flour
1 cup uncooked oats (I use quick)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
1 cup softened butter or margarine (I used one stick of each the last time I made these, and they turned out great)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pumpkin
1 cup chocolate chips
Cream cheese frosting (you can make a really easy cream cheese frosting out of 16 oz of softened cream cheese and 2 cups of powdered sugar)

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease cookie sheets (very important…don’t forget this!)

Combine first 5 ingredients and set aside. Cream butter and sugars together, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Alternate dry ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop ¼ cup* dough on greased cookie sheets. Bake 20-25 minutes until cookies are firm and are lightly browned. Cool on racks. Frost when cool.

*I make them significantly smaller than the recipe calls for, and bake them for a few minutes less. This makes 20 cookies if you make them as the recipe calls for (and they are HUGE).
